We arrived at Sacre Coeur and realised we were starving so mooched down the road expecting lunch to be ridiculously expensive and found Babalou! What a fab little place with amazingly nice pizza at a very reasonable price considering where we were. Just go it's great!

I had a Napoli with extra anchovies. My wife had the "Babalou" (artichoke, truffles, porcini mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes). We literally just arrived in Paris from Italy (I'm Italian) and this was the best pizza we've had on our European excursion!!! If you make it to the top of Montmartre it's worth a stop.

Even though this is an Italian restaurant, it got everything a restaurant in Paris need! We called the restaurant just an hour before to see if they had place for us, and this lovely American lady was very helpful and sorted that out. We also got her as our waitress when we got there, and she was really nice and... More

Cute, unique interior. Good food- we had the chacutterie plate (can't go wrong) shared truffle pizza and some raviloli. It was very reasonable, and nice

The food is lovely, and the wine list is surprising - of average length but with some stellar names. The service is superb - exceptionally friendly and informative. It has the welcoming air of an antique/bric-a-brac shop. A delightfully offbeat place to find so close to Sacre Coeur.

Had a great lunch here yesterday. The place is located behind Sacre Coeur on a small side road. The service was well run with a very patient and organized waiter running the tables. We both had a half pizza and a glass of wine. This left enough room for a follow up of tiramisu! Food was great as was the... More

Right by Sacre Coeur. A few cozy tables outside. Accommodating service. We have the meat/cheese plate, a small salad and a pizza. A good choice when your feet are sore and you need a spot to recoup.

Went here after looking for a restaurant near Sacre Couer on Trip Advisor. Absolutely fabulous food, quirky setting which we loved. The waitress was American so English was spoken. We shared a Pizza, a Pasta and a bottle of wine. All I can say is 'Best pizza and pasta ever' Close to Sacre Coeur, but lots of steps.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
